Home Sustainability Consultations - If you have high electric bills, our Home Sustainability Consultation is for you. If your electric bill is $250 or more, you can easily save $50 or more every month -- that's $600 each year!
What is included: Our sustainability consultant will perform a 60 minute walkthrough of your home with you. You'll then receive a comprehensive written report detailing specific actions you can take, most at no cost, to reduce your electric bills by 20% or more. You'll be amazed at how much you can save! You will also learn ways to reduce your family's exposure to household toxins.
Proven effectiveness: A survey of families who received a home consultation over 18 months prior shows that our unique blend of behavioral education and coaching has significant long-term benefits. The homeowners that participated in the survey had average electric bills prior to the consultation ranging from $350 to $800 per month; 1.5 years after the consultation, each household is still seeing savings from ranging from 20% – 50% monthly. That's as much as $400 a month!
